Ice Cream Parlor

You have to have ice cream in the summertime! This card was made using the Pennant Parade stamp set and the matching pennant punch. The cones were stamped and punched and the ice cream scoop is made from the scallop oval punch cut in half. The base is textured with the square lattice embossing folder.

The part that looks tricky but really isn't, is the parlor awning. It's a separate piece of white card stock folded twice, once at the top and then again down towards the bottom. The scallop border punch is used for the edge of the white cardstock 'awning'. The pink stripe is created with the word window punch. Each word window is placed on every other white scallop.

Instead of a card, I decided to make a gift bag with the ice cream parlor front. The brown bag just folds down in the back. Perfect for a birthday gift!
